Winter / shorter smokes

youngryan216youngryan216 Colorful Colorado Posts: 1,127 ✭✭✭
With the colder months approaching, I am always looking for smokes that take less time to enjoy, but still taste great for a solid 20-40 min.

While I am aware of the Nub by Oliva, I am always underwhelmed by them. So let me stop you ol' bland, chode lovers right OTT. ; )

I think so far, just about the best examples of what I am looking for this winter that I've found are the Ave Maria morning star and the Fuente short story / bestseller. Thoughts?

    There's some nice Cigarillo options out there; I've had an Oliva that was pretty good.

    Im sure my answer is in other threads, but i csnt say enough about the tatuaje petite cazadores reserva.

    Bob has had my back since I joined this forum! Thanks for the links brother. I think I'm going to grab a tin of these Padron Corticos and a couple of the Tat's recommended if I can find them.

    Anyone else seen the tiny Perdomo 10th Anniversary? I picked one up and I felt like a giant hahah. Looks interesting, but I'm sure in college I smoked joints with bigger ring gauges.

    Cohiba Red Dot Pequenos, about 45 mins sometimes. Smoke one on the way to work in the summer months.

    Shorter smokes vary who's smoking them. My buddy can torch through a Churchill in 45 min and my robusto will last an hour. The pack and age matters as well. A Padron will burn very slow in my experience.

    Camacho has a good one as well. Machitos

    Life is too short to smoke bad cigars!!!

  • For winter I like HAVANA HONEY minies or CUBAN HONEY minies.

    Illusione Rothschild is money for a short smoke
  • Bob_LukenBob_Luken already sucked before joining forum,.....just sayin'.Posts: 9,451 ✭✭✭✭✭
    How about this? Clip off a section of your favorite cigar with a good guillotine cutter and smoke it in a cigar holder. Cigar holder
    Then you can maybe get three short smokes from one cigar. Or maybe in a pipe? I've started a thread already asking about whether the pipe idea could work but I just now thought of the cigar holder idea. I might have to try this.

    I've been meaning to try Illusione for a while now. This seems like a good chance.

    Realistically, the 'winter/shorter' smoke concept is a great way to get your wife to let you spend more $ on sticks. It's workingggggg

    I was just going to recommend these. I still get about an hour out of one, but they are great cigars. I want to get a box of 50.

    image Having one of these right now. I think the maddie might be more up my alley. Solid, tasty smoke though for $3. I would estimate 25 minutes of smoking pleasure . . .what a great fall morning.

    Skip CCOM's search if you don't want to dig through 10 pages of duplicate results, and use Google instead.
    You can limit your search results to this site by adding the words **site:cigar.com** after your search keywords.

    So, to (more easily) find Bob's results you could go to Google.com and in the search bar type "Winter Smokes site:cigar.com"

    Good info for sure, the search feature is useless here. I worry about what a total nerd I have become about fine tobacco.

    But then I come here and it's a village of nerds. Alas, Xanadu!

    i agree i am more like 45 minutes to an hour on one, and i want to grab some too, but 50 is a ton of 1 tyep of cigar, and i have no place to store 50 of them....hell i don't have storage for 25 of them.
  • youngryan216youngryan216 Colorful Colorado Posts: 1,127 ✭✭✭
    That Fuente was such a tease. Now i want another cigar. Maybe I'll light one after my two favorite NBA teams play each other tonight! Cavs-Knicks! Do you even basketball bro? Wooooo! (I'm from Cleveland)

    What size is that? 25 minutes for anything seems like a rush. As an on again off again cigarette smoker, I find that when I look for short winter smokes, I subconsciously end up trying to smoke them like a cig. Not saying you're wrong, just curious. I have by accident become a slower smoker because of consciously trying not to smoke a gar like a cig

    Hemingway Short Story. Hands down my favorite short smoke. I also like the Liga Papas Fritas and the tins of Oliva G's.
    Team O'Donnell FTW!

    I agree with the Hemingway Short Story. I'll have to try some of the other suggestions this winter. Or I just need to move to Florida!
  • avengethisavengethis Sorry, I ate all your bacon!Posts: 5,666 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I also have a couple tins of the Padron's that are not that bad either. I have the maduro and naturals.

    I'm sure you saw MOW Puro Authentico in the other threads that were linked, but just throwing it out there. I get around 45 minutes out of them
  • phishstyxphishstyx Posts: 110
    Could you take a perfecto and cut it in half for 2 smokes to be enjoyed at different times?

    I have *one* of these from a Kelly or Tim Deal. I was considering it for my afternoon smoke today. Now I might just have to try it to see if I need to stock up. Realistically, I feel like I should have been stocking my shorter smokes three months ago, though.
    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.
